Olympic swimmer champion Dawn Fraser, 77, has appeared on Channel 9’s The Today Show lampooning Australian tennis player Nick Kyrgios after his Wimbledon loss.

Fraser, a four time swimming gold medallist, was questioned about Kyrgio’s loss and the ‘tanking’ accusations.

Kyrgios was accused of tanking he made little effort to return serve in the third game of the second set during his 7-5 6-1 6-7 (7-9) 7-6 (8-6) loss to Frenchman Richard Gasquet.

Fraser said: “It’s absolutely disgusting. I am so shocked to think that he went out there to play and he tanked. That’s terrible. That’s not a good sportsperson.”

Fraser went on to argue that Kyrgios and Australian tennis player Bernard Tomic should “go back to where their parents came from.”

“They should be setting a better example for the younger generation of this country, a great country of ours.

“If they don’t like it, go back to where their fathers or their parents came from. We don’t need them here in this country if they act like that,” Fraser said.

Kyrgios, who was born in Canberra, is the son of a Greek father and Malaysian mother. Tomic is German-born with a Croatian father and Bosnian mother.
